A dear friend of mine found out that she is pregnant. They have been trying for a little while so as you can imagine they were ecstatic. She really wanted to use these next 9 months to journal and contemplate this happy time. I made her a pregnancy journal with different questions regarding pregnancy, art exercises, a place to put baby bump pictures, and somewhere to write her birth experience. I also included tips and hints that I have read along the way.

Our home is a duplex that is affectionately referred to as a "shotgun". This is a common style in New Orleans. It is basically a house that goes straight back. The idea is that a person could shoot a shotgun from the front and hit the back. I will start the tour at the front door and work my way back.
|We were given new chairs that I would like to upholster at some point.|
|Collage in the office/dining room. You may remember those wood pieces from this post.|
|Our chalkboard wall which I LOVE!! Our landlord was pretty great to let us paint this space.|
|Another piece we were given by Will's cousin. It was perfect for our books and microwave.|
|More books and old kitchen utensils that belonged to my great aunt.|
|More of our room.|
|Her branch made it from Alabama.|
|Flags from the old house and her Africa picture.|
It was tough to get good pictures because of the narrowness of the house. I mostly used everything we had before. I plan on putting lights in the back at some point, but it is too hot at the moment so I am saving that project until we can enjoy them. I have one more picture to get framed and then I think we will be finished. We love this place. It fits us perfectly and it has been so fun to decorate.
